    Hey guys!
    I'm in the market for a new 6 string.
    I have a few things that i need on that guitar and i wanted to know if a guitar like this exists.
    So here are the specs:
    - 25.5" or longer scale
    - nice wooden top or veneer (not just black)
    - good fixed bridge (hipshot or the ibanez equivalent) NO trem!
    - 6 strings
    - reversed headstock

    Is there something like this on the market?
    Price doesnt really matter but the lower, the better^^

    Thx a lot!

    I may come under fire, since the series is generally frowned upon on SS, but I really like the RG721RW. It's not reversed headstock, but it does however have the best hardtail bridge I've ever tried (if you disagree I'm down, fight me).

    I have the blue version of this guitar and I love it. Just be aware, the Iron Label range can be a bit it or miss on quality. The first one I had had mediocre fret leveling, rough fret edges and a tuner locking knob that broke off in the first day I owned it(which was what prompted me to get it replaced). The second one was much better though and is a pretty special guitar to me since it's very inspiring to play. Good luck!

    Thanks for the warning!
    But i buy my stuff from a shop here in switzerland and they take their QC very seriously^^ they check and if needed, level the frets etc... Never had a bad guitar from them.

    Figured it would be appropriate to post due to receiving an Rgr652ahbf yesterday. The guitar is extremely well built and the ash body is nothing short of beautiful. Also, the rosewood fretboard has some stunning grain. Overall, a very solid guitar. I plan on doing an NGD on this as soon as I get a moment. I strongly recommend it!
